UMBC is First Hospital in Utah to Deploy Zoll Pump

Zoll Medical Corp., a manufacturer of resuscitation devices and related software solutions, reported that Uintah Basin Medical Center (UBMC) is the first hospital in the state of Utah to deploy the ZOLL AutoPulse Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump. Based in Roosevelt, Utah (approximately 85 miles east of Provo), UBMC has deployed one AutoPulse in the hospital’s emergency department, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Additionally, four AutoPulse devices are deployed on UBMC’s ambulance fleet, which serves more than 22,000 residents in a 3,200-square-mile area.

Commenting on the AutoPulse, UBMC’s EMT Director Von Johnson said, “Given we are in a rural area, having this kind of device that can do near-perfect CPR chest compressions is critical given the length of our transport times, which can be more than an hour. CPR performed using the AutoPulse is more consistent and efficient because it minimizes chest-compression interruptions and helps our medics in the field — and our clinicians in the ER — be able to do more for the patient.

By having another rescuer available to help with life-saving interventions in lieu of doing manual chest compressions, we can provide better care for our cardiac arrest patients.”
